During our recent trip to Thailand this was one of our most favourite spots. Right on the beach, lovely breezes and great value for money along with an extensive menu. The service was wonderful, along with the waiters remembering my penchant for ice for my wine, which was forthcoming (without... read more

Can't fault the food as it was all yummy. Service was great and location was perfect, just overlooking the beach. It started to rain while we were eating outdoors and within seconds the staff quickly moved the whole table undercover. Only negative was we ended up being near the kitchen door and witness a staff saving fruit from another patrons... More

Good food...good service....really cheap. Basic restaurant with pink plastic chairs. Nice view sitting close to the beach. Four of us ate and drank for 830 baht. Very reasonable. If you walking from Novotel on Patong Beach then its after the massage tables on the beach, after the playground - across from Tantra but before bangla road. First restaurant when you... More

Food here is good and cheap. Not a fancy place but it overlook the sea. Not a very romantic place though because the place is well lit. But still it would be nice to dine here.

Discovered this restaurant by accident, never had a bad meal in Patong and the Wai Thai continued this trend but better than average, in fact excellent. Great seafront location, extensive menu, good drinks selection, very reasonably priced, and excellent friendly staff. Just ignore the plastic chairs, chill out and enjoy.

I've been here a few times. It is opposite Patong smile so most times I have been too numb to eat and just sat and had an iced coffee. It has beautiful shade so a welcome relief from the sun. Because the feel and view is so lovely I normally end up staying over an hour or two using their... More

Huge selection of asian and western items to choose from and good drinks selection. We ate here four times during our two week stay and each time the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. The seating is right on the edge of the beach so best to arrive just before sunset and enjoy the fabulous views.... More
